At the Agricultural Information Center (AIC) we are trying to provide relevant content for Cooperative Extension personnel located throughout the state of Kentucky. The College of Agriculture, Food, and Environment is the University of Kentucky's largest college and has employees located in all of the 120 Kentucky counties. Therefore, we are working to create and maintain relevant outreach services for a geographically and culturally diverse user group. Throughout this process, we have realized that creating online tutorials and virtual training sessions is not enough to support outreach services—we must stay visible. To stay visible, we have visited regional meetings and networked throughout the state and, in doing so, we have recognized that personal contact has driven access and use of our library resources. This session will show how the AIC is assessing its users' needs and providing relevant content for our Cooperative Extension agents.
